Collaboration Across Contexts: Reframing OpenEd for a Post-Pandemic World

In this session, we will offer a reframing and decolonizing of “OpenEd" to include diverse, global perspectives. Too often we assume that adopting an open practice is all about cost savings for students. While making education affordable is critically important, we argue that offering students an expanded world-view and setting them up to succeed as consumers (of information and goods) in the global economy is of equal importance. As practitioners, we can lead by example through intentionally fostering opportunities for global engagement and by welcoming diverse perspectives into our unique fields and disciplines.

We believe #OpenEd20 should be about helping to situate learners in a broader, global context; one honest about the complexity within which we all find ourselves (climate change, culture wars, pandemics, etc.) but one receptive to the promise of new opportunities. Join a panel of educators and practitioners as we explore what it means to reframe OpenEd in 2020 and beyond. We will explore a collection of perspectives and projects including:
